Gardenia" is a Hardy 
Perennial. It is not a 

biennial. It blooms^ 
year after year. 


Blue QcrtdeMda "

at lower prices! Even more beautiful than a true Gardenia. 
And remember that it is a perennial and will bloom for you 
yjear after year — starts first year. 

You will 'find Campanula "Blue Gardenia" far more beauti- 
ful than the picture. The color is a delicate blue that we 
found hard to reproduce. Flowers occur -almost the entire 
length of the stems and the stems grow to about 30 inches in 
height. Five to eight flower spikes are produced per plant. 
Foliage is beautiful dark green and leathery. 

Long Blooming 


Blooms from the middle of June to the middle of July. 
Flowers fine for cut flowers lasting a week or. more after being 
cut. Blooms first year. 

Hardy and Healthy 

Insects do not seem to bother Campanula "Blue Gardenia" 
at all and it easily stands temperatures well below zero. Blooms 
year after year without replanting. Easy to grow in average 
garden soil with average drainage. 

Horticulturists of wide and excellent experience have pro- 
nounced this plant one of the most outstanding and exceptional 
introductions in recent years. Every gardener should have it. 


Strong field-grown plants— BLOOM FIRST YEAR— 1 for 
: 65c; 2 for £1.10; 4 for #1.95. 

Note: The name Campanula "Blue Gardenia" does not indi- 
. s cate that this plant is related to Gardenias. It is a Campanula 
with flowers of the same beautiful form as a Gardenia. 

Hardy Perennial 

IMPORTANT! Note that Campanula "Blue Gardenia" is 
not a biennial like most Campanulas, but a perennial — blooms 
year after year without replanting. Starts blooming the first

Shirley Temple 

It takes, a beautiful Glad and 
one that is very charming to merit 
the name Shirley Temple. This 
Glad does indeed earn the right 
to its name. The basic color is 
white but it is overlaid with a . : soft 
blush or cream color. The well placed 
blooms are heavily and beautifully 
ruffled with 6 or 7 open. at. one time. 
New but already in great demand.

Ten Gladioli-New/ 



Cheerful is indeed a splendid 
name for this beautiful new variety. 
The color is a clear light red with 
a clean'cut splash of white. Spikes 
are tall, straight and medium slen- 
der, each with 8 or more blooms 
open at one time. Florets are ruf' 
fled beautifully and well placed. See 
the picture above. Always stands 
erect. Won blue ribbons as seed' 
ling. Prices: 25c each; 3 for 67c; 5 
for #1.00; 6 for #1.17. 



Name means "moonlight on the 
water" and is very aptly chosen. 
Color is delicate creamy yellow, 
somewhat like pure golden sulphur, 
but much lighter. Beautiful splashes 
of gold in throat, and faint splashes 
of very delicate rose here and there 
at edges of petals. We have never 
seen a yellow glad like this — never 
a similar shade, never one so beau* 
tiful. Prices: 75c each, 2 for #1.35; 
3 for #1.95; 6 for #3.75. 



Reflection is the finest lavender anywhere 
— color clear and unmarred by blotches, 
flecks or lines. One of the lightest of 
lavender shades, but .deepens in color when 
brought indoors. Florets perfectly set, 
straight forward and close together, at 
least six open at one time. Grows to av> 
erage height of 5 feet in three months. 
A variety to arouse the praise and com- 
ment of all who 
see it. Prices: V

Rose of Michigan 

Grand Master 

Rose of Michigan Grand Master 

Now this beautiful new glad 
comes as a mate to the beautiful 
Cactus Rose. Rose of Michigan is 
not a rival of Cactus Rose because 
it is a different shade — darker, and 
lined with velvet in the throat in- 
stead of being frosted — deep, dark 
red, plushy velvet. Nature's brush 
slipped here and there and made lit' 
tie splashes of red. It's beautiful! 
Sometimes compared to the; Araer- 
ican Beauty Rose in color. Prices: 
75c each; 2 for #1.35; 3 for #1.95: 
6 for #3.75. 

Red — beautiful velvety red! 
Grand Master is the richest red you 
ever saw — smooth, soft and velvety. 
The only markings are very faint 
streaks of "black." The dark red 
extends into the deepest extremities 
of the throat with no shadings ex' 
cepting the deep dark shadow. 
Florets open many at once and lap 
over each other, making a continu' 
ous mass of red that is amazing in 
its beauty. "Prices: 1 for 65c; 2 for 
#1.00; 4 for #1.85; 6 for #2.70; 12 
for #5.20. 

So Big 

So Big 

Again we .have a variety that 
earns its name. So Big is one of 
the largest of all Gladiolus varieties. 
Both the flowers and the spikes are 
immense. And not only is it im» 
mense in size but it is immense in 
beauty. It is a deep roscpink with 
violet markings on the lower petals^ 
a beautiful effect that you cannot ap" 
predate until you see it. A real prize 
winner. Prices: 25c each; 3 for 67q; : 
5 for #1.00; 6 for #1.17.

Ten Gladioli-New/ 

Tyrian Princess 

White Spire 


Tyrian Princess 

The beautiful coloring of this va- 
riety reminds us of a dusky Mediter' 
ranean Princess. The color is a beau' 
tiful dusky cherry-rose laid on in 
splashes and rivulets over a lighter 
shade. The throat is beautifully and 
delicately frosted. Spikes are closely 
packed but still florets are well ar- 
ranged. Prices: 50c each; 2 for 85c; 
3 for #1.20; 6 for #2.25. 

White Spire 

One of the most unique of white 
glads, and at the same time one of 
the most beautiful. The petals are 
pure frosty white, but look at them 
closely and you will find faint (oh, 
so very faint) splashes of pink. 
UniqUe also for the arrangement of 
florets on the spike — instead of be' 
ing staggered, the florets are in two 
fairly even rows. Prices: 75c each; 
2 for #1.35; 3 for #1.95; 6 for #3.75. 


No color is more popular in Glad' 
ioli than salmon-pink and here is 
one of the most beautiful salmon' 
pinks ever brought forth. Wenonah 
rivals all other salmon-pink glads 
and has a delight of its own that 
others do not have. It is splashed 
with darker colors at the edges and 
in the throat. 9 to 12 florets open 
or opening at a time. Prices: #1.00 
each; 2 for #1.85.

Never before 
have we seen a 
masterpiece such 
as this. Seventh 
Heaven is abso- 
lutely new — nev- 
er before offered. 


New this year, 1940— never before introduced— Mrs. 
George Kinyon's Masterpiece. 

Several years ago the famous Glad, Picardy, startled 
the flower world with its amazing beauty and size. 
Picardy deserves every bit of its fame but Seventh 
Heaven is destined to outshine it. Picardy is huge flow 
ered and beautiful but Seventh Heaven is even greater 
— florets often measure 6 inches across or more. 

The color of Picardy is beautiful, too, but that of 
Seventh Heaven is amazingly even more beautiful — 
delicate salmon-rose slightly splashed with deeper color 
at edges and in the throat — a shading that is really in- 
describably beautiful. We unfortunately secured Sev 
enth Heaven too late for a color picture but even a 
color picture could not show its true beauty. 

Note the amazing display ,of florets. Seventh Heaven 
has 10 to 12 huge ones open or opening at once. 
We have seen spikes with even more than the one 
shown here. Grows very tall, straight and strong. A lib- 
eral producer of many beautiful spikes. 

We have only a very few blooming size Seventh 
Heaven bulbs this year and only the far-sighted few 
who order at once will get them. If you want the dis- 
tinction of having Seventh Heaven in 1940, order at 

PRICES: Large blooming size bulbs, $3.50 each. 


Mrs. George Kinyon, who originated such amazing 
beauties as Wenonah, Emblem of Purity, White Spire, 
Reflection, So Big, Iosco and many other top-notchers, 
originated Seventh Heaven. Every year since the 
American Home Achievement Medal has been offered 
in Michigan she has won it. Her Gladioli are noted 
for their amazingly clean, bright colors and beautifully 
shaped, well-placed florets. Again we say, Seventh 
Heaven is Mrs. Kinyon's masterpiece. You must order 
at once.

if your order amounts to $5.00 or more 

If your cash order for nursery stock 
amounts to $5.00 or more, you may select 
another $1.00 value free of extra charge — 
any nursery stock you wish from this 
catalog. Simply add the extra $1.00 value to 
your order and you will receive it free of 
extra cost. 


Often orders amount to $475, $4.85, or some 
similar amount. A $4.85 order does not get 
the $1.00 value free but by adding 15c more 
to a $4.85 order, you make the amount $5.00 
and get the $1.00 value; 25c added to a 
$4.75 order does the same, and so on. 
persons may combine orders and divide the 
premium if shipped to one person. 


If you send two or more orders BEFORE 
APRIL FIRST totaling $5.00 or more, they 

will be shipped as one order and the $1.00 
free offer is good. After April 1st, new orders 
are booked and shipped separately, hence, 
two or more orders cannot be totaled to get 
the premium. After April 1st the $1.00 free 
value is still good but is given only on single 
orders that amount to $5.00 or more. 


We can handle and ship a $5.00 order with 
very little extra expense over a smaller order 
and we pass the saving on to you in this 
premium value. 

This offer applies to orders for ornamental 
nursery stock from this catalog only. Orders 
from our fruit catalog are not included. Only 
orders for planting stock (plants, bulbs, 
shrubs, trees, etc.) can be included, since 
other items such as fertilizers, books, spray- 
ers, etc., cannot be packed with nursery 
stock and no savings are effected. 



We guarantee stock to be just as represented or 
orders refilled free; we further warrant all stock 
to be carefully packed and shipped in good 
growing condition, and if this stock is properly 
and carefully planted, watered, and cared for, it 
will grow and give satisfactory results. 

We cannot guarantee continuous growth since 
this depends upon the care you give the plants 
and also upon your local conditions. However, 
where failure of plants to grow is due to arrival 
in poor condition, we will replace the unsatis- 
factory plants without charge, providing reports 
are received prior to June 30th 

After June 30th and prior to October 1st of the 
current year, plants will be replaced at half 
price. No refills after October 1st. 
It is mutually agreed that in any event we will 
not be liable for more than the purchase price 
of the stock. 

Refills per this guaranty will be made during 
the current shipping season if reports are re- 
ceived in time. Otherwise they will be made 
during the following season. Plants and other 
nursery stock sent as ordered, and received in 
good condition, cannot be returned for credit 
and we accept no obligation for their return.

One of the oddest, most, un- 
usual . and most beautiful Dahlias 
we have ever seen. The unusual 
part is the orchid'white tips. The 
rest of the Dahlia is flaming 
orange-sunset with a beautiful 
tight center of deep orchid. At 
the base, petals are beautiful apple- 
green. The coloring is not uni' 
form but occurs in most beautiful 
splashes and streaks. Nowhere 
have we ever before seen a Dahlia 
like this. It is large in size, dec 
orative in shape. 

Again we emphasize the orchid' 
white tips. They look as if the tips 
are lighted with tiny spotlights.

Now, at last! Here are your ideal Delphiniums. 
Nearly all Double. More colors — tall — beautiful! 
See further details at right. 


Pacific Strain 

The beautiful color picture of Pacific Del- 
phiniums tells you more than we could say in 
10,000 words; however, here are a few things 
the picture does not tell. 

SO pel cent ^bo44tUe 

When we were first told that these Pacific Strain 
Hybrid Delphiniums would be 80% double we did 
not believe it but exhaustive tests on our own nursery 
actually do prove that at least eight out of every ten 
of these will be double. Field-marked 100% double 
Delphiniums sell for 75c each. Now you can order 
this Pacific Hybrid Strain and nearly every one of 
them will be double. Note the extremely low prices 
at the left. 

< Iall f SttoHKj, 
tf-letUUe StewtA, 

The stems of Pacific Hybrid Delphiniums are not 
only tall and strong, but flexible and instead of break' 
ing in a strong breeze they spring right back into po- 
sition. You will have less broken stems with Pacific 
Hybrids than with any other variety. 

Not only are Pacific Hybrid Delphiniums 
nearly all double, but they come in a larger 
color range. Colors range from delicate light 
blue to dark purple as shown. 

Spikes of Pacific Hybrid Delphiniums 
are closely packed with large, beautiful 
florets as shown. Each spike is a marvel 
of beauty. 


Pacific Hybrid Strain Delphiniums are perfectly 
hardy and will come through your winters with no 
more protection than you give other Delphiniums.

Some time ago we were shown the 
most amazingly beautiful Gladiolus we 
had ever seen. We wanted it at once, 
especially when told that it was Mrs. 
George Kinyon's origination, and fin- 
ally arranged for its purchase just be 
fore our catalog went to press. We 
were too late for a color picture, but 
imagine a Glad twice as beautiful as 
any you ever saw before and you 
will have a faint idea of Seventh 
Heaven's beauty. It is Mrs. Kinyon's 
masterpiece. See page 10.

THE red picture at the right is Santa Ciaus, all loaded with 
hundreds of beautiful presents — presents of beautiful flow- 
ers for you! Each Santa Ciaus flower is a beauty. They are 
beautiful dark red in color, even prettier than the picture, and 
are beautiful in shape and large in size — usually 2]/i to 3 inches 
across, sometimes more. A pretty tuft of small petals in the 
center opens up and displays a delightful contrasting shade of gold. 


O ANTA CLAUS usually starts blooming some time during Au- 
^ gust and continues until stopped by frost, but it takes a good 
frost to stop Santa Ciaus. Santa Ciaus is probably injured less by 
frost than any other flower of its type. Often new blossoms open 
from buds after frost. 


O ANTA CLAUS is similar in shape and quantity of blossoms 
^r to Asaleamums and Glorymums but grows somewhat taller 
and is ONE OF THE MOST HARDY OF ALL. In fact, it is 
exceedingly hardy and easy to grow.

This new plant is so far su' 
perior to most others used in 
the hardy border that we pre' 
diet an amazing future for it. 
Hardy Fuchsia Scarlet Beauty 
blooms during the dry sum' 
mer months when other flow- 
ers are scarce — it fills in from 
July to early fall with hun- 
dreds of beautiful drooping 
scarlet flowers, often about 
500 flowers and buds at a time 
per plant. The foliage is ex- 
ceedingly beautiful, too, hav- 
ing a glossy, holly-green beauty from spring until after frosts. 
Not straggly but very beautifully shaped. Can be trimmed in 
heights of 15 inches to 3 feet. Fuchsia Scarlet Beauty is the sur- 
prise plant of 1940 and we hope every Kellogg customer will 
order at least one. 

Established plants start blooming about July 1st and continue 
all summer. Grow about 2 feet high first year and reach max- 
imum height (3 feet) third year. Thrive in neutral or just 
slightly acid soil. Like water but are nevertheless EXCEED- 
INGLY DROUGHT RESISTANT when established. Tops 
die down during the winter like Buddleias but quickly regain 

height with 
the opening 
of spring. 
Foliage main- 
tains bright 
glossy green 
color until 
after frost.

VtiM MVM Everbloomingl 


We went clear to Japan to get our 
start with these new Green-Throated 
Lily bulbs. We searched the world for 
strong, blooming size bulbs that could 
be relied upon to grow vigorously. The 
bulbs we furnish are tested and proven 
bloomers that will bloom the first season. 

And don't forget that Green-Throated Lilies are 
everblooming. They make a new record in length 
of blooming season for Lilies. Starting in August 
they bloom heavily until stopped by heavy frosts. 
Often they continue until November 1st or later.

We can approximate the color of 
Flash Rose in a picture but not the 
amazing, glowing quality. The blos- 
soms almost seem to be on fire. 

This new Climbing Rose far surpasses in 
brilliance any Climbing Rose that has ever been 
originated. The blooms seem to glow with their 
own inner fire, the colors glowing and flashing 
in magical fashion. 

Long Blooming 

"Flash" starts blooming early in June and 
flowers open daily for weeks. A very long 
blooming rose. Color is vivid orange-scarlet 
with backs of petals yellow suffused with scar- 
let. The center is gleaming yellow filled with 
golden anthers. Buds are yellow with scarlet 
profusion. Many flowers are open at one time, 
giving a dazzling effect. The picture of Flash 
shown here does not half do justice to the, 
actual Rose because its shimmering brilliance 
cannot be shown on paper.
